Aggressive limescale on fittings and surfaces?

How does lime get into our water?

Water is one of the most important elements gifted to us by Mother Nature. In its natural state, it flows over gravel, rocks and underground. This is how water becomes enriched, not just with plenty of natural oxygen, but also with many vital trace elements, minerals and natural information.  One of these is calcium carbonate, better known as limestone.

The amount of lime that water takes up depends on the characteristics of the subsoil, and this then determines the hardness of the water.  Water quality is not adversely affected; on the contrary, lime actually improves the taste of water.

When we talk about hard water, this is water that contains large quantities of dissolved magnesium (MgCO3) and calcium (CaCO3)

In order to reduce possible limescale damage and costs, it’s important to install a descaling device as early as possible. Finding out which system is right for your water depends primarily on the degree of the water’s hardness.


The consequences are well known: limescale in pipes and fittings, corroded areas around the sink, bath and shower, and burnt lime on heating coils where the water is heated to a high temperature.
